On Tuesday, conservative journalist Laura Loomer said she filed a police report to press charges of assault against Maxine Waters, the impeachment-obsessed California Democrat who recently incited violence against members of the Trump administration.
Loomer explained: “When I confronted her regarding her call for targeted harassment of Trump administration officials, Ms. Waters assaulted me 3 times. She hit my hand to try to knock my phone out of my hand, and then she hit me in the face with her papers twice.”
Yesterday when I confronted her on Capitol Hill, she ASSAULTED me. She hit my hand, then she swatted me in the face twice w/ her papers. I’m pressing charges against her. https://t.co/t6GiTwI97x

She also posted a photo of the police report number:

Reaction to her report was largely supportive:
Good! I pointed that out in one or two of my tweets.
You should bring charges against her.
I wish you could do something about that schoolgirl bully smirk she had on her face at the back of the "members only elevator"!!!

Assault charge on the woman @RepMaxineWaters calling for assault would be sweet justice.

You have every right to file charges against a person who not only incites violence but physically assaults you.

Good luck, let's hope Waters loses her job as a Representative, and never gets to work again for our government in any form. She incites for violence against others based on political belief. She is a threat.

One person wondered how many others Waters has assaulted:
Thank you for always being so courageous & diligent!
It's great to finally see someone hold Mad Maxine accountable.
Just a thought – How many other people has Maxine done this to, but they let Mad Max get away with it?!

Over the weekend, Waters encouraged supporters to harass and attack members of the Trump administration in public places.
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she said.
Since then, Judicial Watch filed a House ethics complaint against Waters and Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., filed a measure to censure Waters. That measure also calls for her to formally apologize and resign from the House. A separate White House petition demands she be expelled from Congress and the pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk, among others, have said she should be deemed a domestic terrorist.
All in all, it hasn’t been a good week for Waters.
Hopefully, voters in California’s 43rd Congressional District will see fit to kick Waters out of office this November — assuming, of course, that she’s not in jail or a mental institution…
